The Summer Session
The summer session at Mary Washington College is designed to
fulfill a number of objectives. It allows students to accelerate their
academic programs, either at Mary Washington or at other colleges,
or to make up deficiencies. It also provides an opportunity for
teachers to renew professional certificates, to take additional work
toward a degree, or add to or update their competence in a specific
academic discipline. In addition to beginning-level courses, the
summer session also offers advanced specialized study in most
fields and permits a student majoring in a given area the op-
portunity to further enrich her knowledge of the field. Some of the
course work is especially suited to the summer season and could
not effectively be offered at another time of the year.
Standards of work in the summer session are the same as those
during the regular session, but concentrated presentation, smaller
classes, and longer class hours allow a student to finish in eight
weeks the work normally covered in a semester of sixteen weeks.
The usual student load is from eight to ten credit hours or from
two to three classes daily, including laboratories.
The summer session class meets for sixty-minutes daily, with no
regular classes scheduled on Saturday. The final three days of the
summer session are devoted to final examinations.
Mary Washington College is a state-aided liberal arts college for
women and a part of the University of Virginia. As such, it has
an obligation to the people of the Commonwealth of Virginia to
provide, without regard to race, creed or national origins, the
best education for those students who give promise of succeeding
As a liberal arts college, Mary Washington stands firmly in
the tradition that a broad education in the arts, the sciences,
and the humanities, complemented by intensive study in a particular
field of interest, is a most appropriate preparation for life and
Asa college for women, Mary Washington endeavors to provide
the best intellectual background possible for the woman of today.
It recognizes the importance of the inquiring mind, the significance
of aesthetic sensitivity and the necessity of individual and corporate
Finally, as a part of the University of Virginia, Mary Washington
College has a unique role to fill in Virginia education, and is
pledged to the selection of a qualified student body, to the mainte-
nance of a competent faculty and staff, and to the development of
the academic and social environment necessary to achieve its goals.
Mary Washington College is fully accredited by the Southern
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. It is a member of
the Southern University Conference, the American Council on
Education, the Association of American Colleges, the Association
of Virginia Colleges, the College Entrance Examination Board,
the National Commission on Accrediting, the Southern Association
of Colleges for Women, the University Center in Virginia, and
the National Association of Schools of Music.
Mary Washington College is a corporate member of the Ameri-
can Association of University Women which is affiliated with the
International Federation of University Women (IFUW). Graduates
are eligible for membership in the national and international
organizations. There is a local branch of the A AUW in Fredericks-
Founded as the Fredericksburg Normal and Industrial School
for Women in 1908, Mary Washington College has experienced a
growth closely paralleling the development of education for women
in the State of Virginia. The cooridination of the College with the
University of Virginia was the culmination of efforts by the women
of Virginia to gain educational opportunities comparable to those
provided by the State for men.
By the beginning of this century the Virginia General Assembly
began a move to provide a more adequate education for the young
women in the state. This resulted in the establishment of two
normal schools, one in Fredericksburg and the other in Harrison-
In 1909 the State made an appropriation of $25,000 for the
purchase of land in or near Fredericksburg. A sixty-acre site on
Marye's Heights overlooking the city was subsequently chosen.
By 1924 the normal school had developed beyond its original
mission and as a result of action by the General Assembly, the
College then became the State Teachers' College, Fredericksburg.
The curriculum was divided into a two-year and a four-year
program. Those students successfully completing the four-year
program received a B.S. degree in education plus the regular state
collegiate professional certificate, while those completing the two-
year program earned a normal professional or special teacher's
A further change occurred in 1935 when, in recognition of the
necessity for providing a balanced education for women that was
not oriented solely toward the teaching profession, the College
was given the additional privilege of conferring degrees in the
liberal arts, as well as in the professional, vocational, and technical
fields. From this point on, the College was in fact a state college
This shift in emphasis led in turn to the third change of name
for the Fredericksburg institution— to Mary Washington College—
by act of the General Assembly in 1938.
The fourth major change occurred in 1944 when a bill was
brought before the state legislature to make Mary Washington
College the undergraduate college of arts and sciences for women
of the University of Virginia.
With the establishment of Mary Washington College as the
women's college of the University, emphasis was placed upon the
liberal arts. Courses that were regarded as primarily vocational
were either eliminated or continued on a non-credit basis. By
1948 the initial transition was completed.
Since that time, academic growth has continued. A number of
changes have been implemented to emphasize further Mary Wash-
ington College's role as a liberal arts college for women; as the
needs for women in liberal arts have changed, so too has the
One of the few state-aided liberal arts colleges for women in
America, Mary Washington draws its students from almost every
state— and enrolls a number of students from foreign countries.
The name— Mary Washington College of the University of Vir-
ginia— combines historic significance and background with local
associations. Within sight of the hill on which the College is
located are the home and tomb of Mary Washington; and Ken-
more, the home of her daughter, Betty Washington Lewis. The
College grounds were at one time a part of the Lewis estate.
Location and Environment
The Mary Washington College campus, which also includes the
historic Brompton estate, comprises 381 acres situated on Marye's
Heights overlooking the city of Fredericksburg and the Rappa-
hannock Valley. Immediately adjacent to the Fredericksburg and
Spotsylvania National Military Park, the grounds were the site
of the Civil War Battle of Fredericksburg; long before that, it is
said, a portion of the area was an Indian village.
The City of Fredericksburg has now enveloped the College
property, which has, however, remained an integral unit, un-
broken by the urban development. Some thirty-three buildings are
located on the campus and, in addition, there are a golf course,
athletic fields and tennis courts, swimming pool, and an outdoor
amphitheatre. Though the buildings are widely situated on the
spacious wooded grounds, they are within easy walking distance
of one another.
The downtown business district of Fredericksburg and other
more recently constructed shopping centers are within convenient
walking distance of the campus.
Fredericksburg is situated halfway between Washington, D.C.
(55 miles), and Richmond, Virginia (55 miles), and is easily
accessible from the north or south on Interstate Highway 95 or
U. S. Route 1, or from the east or west on U. S. Route 17 or
Virginia Route 3. Bus transportation (Greyhound or Trailways)
and rail transportation (Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Potomac
Railroad) are also readily accessible. The closest commercial airlines
facilities are at the National Airport and Dulles International
Airport, both serving Washington, D. C. , and each an hour's
ride from the College; or at Byrd Airport in Richmond, only
slightly further away.
Fredericksburg is a city of 15,000 with modern shopping and
tourist facilities. There exists a very cordial relationship between
the College and the community, and the students are a part of
this relationship whether as shoppers, or part-time employees at
local businesses or as members of local church congregations.
The City and surrounding area have played an important role in
American history from the time Captain John Smith and his
followers sailed up the Rappahannock River in 1608 until the
Sometimes called "America's Most Historic City" , Fredericks-
burg is identified with much of the nation's history. Americans
such as Alexander Spotswood, George Washington, James Monroe,
James Madison, and John Paul Jones were closely associated with
the city, as were many other colonial history-makers.
In addition, four major engagements of the Civil War were
fought in the Fredericksburg area— all encompassing Marye's
Heights where the College is located— and the reminders of
America's heritage are still clearly present.
Brompton, now a part of the College grounds and the residence
of its Chancellor, was once headquarters for the Confederate
forces defending the City and center of the Federal attack in
both the first and second battles of Fredericksburg. Also located
on the College grounds is a memorial to Confederate Sergeant
Richard Kirkland of South Carolina, a hero of the Battle of
Fredericksburg. The memorial was created by sculptor Felix
deWeldon and dedicated in 1965.
Thousands of interested Americans and foreign visitors come
to Fredericksburg each year to re-live history by touring these
important landmarks. As an accomodation the City operates
Information Centers on Interstate Highway 95 and at the corner of
U. S. Route 1 and Princess Anne Street in the City.
Buildings and Accommodations
The physical facilities at Mary Washington College may best be
described as neo-classical in the Jeffersonian tradition. The red
brick, white-columned buildings have been situated in an orderly
manner on the campus, utilizing as much as possible the existing
natural surroundings. The thirty-three structures include eighteen
residence halls and nine academic buildings. Those buildings to
be utilized during the summer session are described below.
Chandler Hall. Named in memory of Algernon B. Chandler, Jr.,
president of the College from 1919 until his death in 1928, this
building contains offices, classrooms, seminar rooms, and labora-
tories for English, home economics, and psychology.
Combs Science Hall. Honoring the late Morgan L. Combs,
President of the College from 1929 to 1955, this modern, four-
story science complex was opened for use in September 1959. It
provides lecture rooms, offices, laboratories, and other facilities
for instruction in astronomy, biology, chemistry, geography,
geology, mathematics, and physics. It has adequate space to make
possible continued expansion of course offerings in these fields.
A botanical greenhouse addition is currently being planned and
is scheduled tor use during the 1970-71 session.
Fine Arts Center. The Fine Arts Center contains three separate
buildings connected by arcades: Jessie Ball duPont Hall, Gari
Melchers Hall, and John Garland Pollard Hall.
duPont Hall. The central building of the group constituting the
fine arts complex is named in honor of Jessie Ball duPont (Mrs.
Alfred I.) of Wilmington, Delaware, and Ditchley, Virginia,
in recognition of her interest and generosity to the College. She
is also a direct descendent of Mary Ball Washington for whom
the college is named. This central unit contains exhibit rooms,
classrooms, a broadcasting studio, and language laboratories. It
also houses a theatre with a seating capacity of 300, rehearsal
rooms, make-up rooms, and a scenery loft. Classes in dramatic
arts and speech and modern foreign languages use these facilities.
Melchers Hall. The south building of the complex is named in
honor of the late Gari Melchers, internationally known artist,
whose home, Belmont, in nearby Falmouth, is now a memorial
under the trusteeship of the College. Melchers Hall is devoted to
such arts as painting, sculpture, and ceramics, and contains class-
rooms, studios, kilns, offices, and workrooms. Housed here also
is the fast-growing and carefully selected slide library for use in
the art history classes.
Pollard Hall. The north building, bearing the name of the late
John Garland Pollard, Governor of Virginia, Attorney-General,
college professor, and patron of the arts, is devoted exclusively to
music. It contains studios for individual instruction, band practice
rooms, and offices.
Monroe Hall. This structure was named for President James
Monroe, who lived in Fredericksburg and whose life was closely
identified with the community. It contains classrooms and offices
for the departments of classics, economics and political science,
education, history, and religion. It has an assembly hall with a
seating capacity of about 200.
E. Lee Trinkle Library. Named in honor of the late E. Lee
Trinkle, former Governor of Virginia and for many years Presi-
dent of the State Board of Education, once the governing board of
the College, the library contains more than 200,000 volumes.
It is a large air-conditioned facility and provides ample study
and reading space for all students. An open-stack system permits
the students to browse and work directly with the books. Typing
rooms, individual study cubicles, microfilm readers, coin-operated
xerox facilities, and a hook-up on a state-wide library teletype
system for inter-library lending are a few of the services and
In an effort to maintain accurate and up-to-date material for
classroom and research purposes the library subscribes to and
catalogues nearly 900 periodicals and newspapers. This list in-
cludes 132 foreign and 710 domestic periodicals and 7 foreign
and 21 domestic newspapers.
In addition, the library is a depository for other selected
government documents; it maintains a record collection as well
as a music manuscript collection.
In 1964, the library opened a rare books room which pro-
vides ready access to a growing collection of first editions and
books of particular rarity. Special attention is currently being
given to books by and about James Joyce and the nineteenth
century French physiologist, Claude Bernard, as well as to books
on eighteenth century architecture, landscaping and gardening.
George Washington Hall. This facility is named in honor of George
Washington, whose life was closely associated with Fredericksburg
and this section of Virginia. It contains the administrative offices,
classroom and office facilities for the philosophy department, the
telephone exchange for the College, the internal mail facility and
central duplication services for the College. It also contains the
largest auditorium on the campus with a seating capacity of more
than 1 ,600.
Goolrick Hall. The newest building on the campus has been named
for the late C. O' Conor Goolrick, who, as a member of the
General Assembly of Virginia, sponsored the 1908 legislation
establishing the College. It contains all of the facilities and
equipment necessary for a complete physical education program.
There are, for example, an indoor swimming pool, a large gym-
nasium and auxiliary gym, a handball court, dance studios, sun
decks, and an exercise room. In addition, the several academic
departments have offices and classrooms in the building.
Brompton. Brompton is the home of the Chancellor of the
College and is situated on a 174- acre site near the main campus.
The first unit of the colonial brick mansion is believed to have
been erected about 1730. It was enlarged and completed in 1836
by Colonel John L. Marye and restored, after purchase by the
College, in 1946.
In a report by historians for the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania
National Military Park, it is stated that "no other house on the
American continent is more important or better known in con-
nection with military history, and few other homes are better
examples of their type".
Also located on this tract of land, which comprises the major
portion of the original estate, is the College nine-hole golf course.
Belmont. Located in Falmouth across the Rappahannock River
from Fredericksburg, Belmont is the estate where Gari Melchers,
the noted American artist, lived and worked during the last
sixteen years of his distinguished career. As a memorial to her
husband, Mrs. Corinne Lawton Mackall Melchers deeded Belmont
and many of his paintings to the Commonwealth of Virginia.
The property is now administered by Mary Washington College.
Many of the Melchers paintings may be seen in the College
offices and other buildings.
Hamlet House. Named after a former Professor at the College,
this frame structure now serves as the Counseling Center at the
Ann Carter Lee Hall. Popularly known as the "Student Activities"
building, this structure bears the name of the mother of Robert
E. Lee. It provides such recreational areas as a ballroom, recep-
tions rooms, television facilities, informal lounges, the College
book store, and the "C Shoppe", a campus snack bar. It also
contains an indoor swimming pool and bowling alleys. Located
here is the office of the Director of Student Affairs, as are the
offices of the major student organizations.
Hugh Mercer Infirmary. Named for Dr. Hugh Mercer, a physician
of Fredericksburg and a brigadier-general in the Revolutionary
War, the infirmary is a modern, thirty-seven bed medical facility.
Every room is provided with private or connecting bath. There
are also isolation wards, a solarium, a sun deck, a dining room
It is maintained on a twenty-four hour a day basis by a staff
of nurses, and a staff of physicians residing in the community
are available at all times.
Seacobeck Hall. A Seacobeck Indian village once occupied the
present site of the campus dining hall. It has a central kitchen,
five main dining areas, and a reception room. It also is equipped
with its own bakery, ice plant and storage facilities.
Spotswood House. Originally built as a home and used for a
time as a small residence hall, this frame building located opposite
the main entrance to the College is now occupied by the Alumnae
Association. Alexander Spotswood was a colonial governor of Vir-
Amphitheatre. The outdoor amphitheatre is set on the slope of
a hill in a natural grove of trees and has a seating capacity of
approximately 1 ,500. It is the site of the annual May Festival at
Post Office. The College Station, a branch of the Fredericksburg
Post Office, is located on College Avenue, across the street from
the main campus, and provides individual mail boxes for students
in addition to other postal services.
All residence halls at Mary Washington College provide com-
fortable housing, with ample ventilation and light. All major
halls have reception parlors, recreation rooms, pressing facilities,
washers and driers, kitchenettes, and storage facilities. Two of
the newer residence halls are scheduled for use during the summer

Although the summer school study proceeds at a rapid rate,
an upper limit on the course load insures that the student will
have ample time for intensive individual study as well as for
recreation. In addition, small classes make possible a good deal
of attention to the individual needs of the students. Students en-
rolling at the College for the first time are given some orientation.
They are required, however, to take part also in the general
orientation program in September, if they continue their studies
at Mary Washington College. During the summer session members
of the administration and faculty are available to provide assistance
to any student. Questions dealing with the academic program
should initially be directed to the Office of the Dean of the
College or the Director of the Summer Session, while residential
problems should be taken to the Office of the Dean of Students.
Students, except those living in their own homes and attending
as day students, will be expected to reside on the campus. Every
student must provide a certificate from her family physician in-
dicating the results of a recent physical examination.
The College strives to create and maintain an atmosphere of
friendliness and helpfulness on the part of students and faculty.
It is expected that students will at all times uphold the standards,
traditions, and regulations of the College and that parents will
cooperate in these matters. A student is likewise held responsible
for the conduct of her guests on campus.
The College administration reserves the right to request any
student to withdraw whose conduct or general attitude is con-
sidered unsatisfactory, even though no specific charge is made
Mary Washington College adheres to an honor system ad-
ministered and enforced solely by the students. This authority
is delegated to the students by the Board of Visitors of the
University of Virginia.
The Honor System provides that a student shall act honorably
in all aspects of campus life. Lying, cheating, stealing, or breaking
one's word of honor are considered infringements of the Honor
System. Whenever a violation of the Honor System is proved,
the result is always immediate and permanent separation from
Every student entering the College for the first time is given
a copy of the entire Code of the Honor System. After she has
familiarized herself with its provisions and is certain of its
meaning and obligations, she signs a pledge stating that she
understands what is expected of her and that she realizes that a
plea of ignorance will not be accepted by the Honor Council.
Registration as a student in the College is not considered complete,
and no grades or credits will be released until this card has been
Though most clubs and campus organizations are inactive
during the summer session, a limited number of organizational
activities are available.
The Student Government Association, through elected and ap-
pointed representatives, continues its shared responsibility for stu-
dent life and conduct.
General social privileges are granted in keeping with college
policies, student government regulations, and the parental form
returned to the Office of the Dean of Students. A married
student must apply in advance to the Dean of Students for
special permission to be in residence.
All student vehicles must be registered in the Office of the
Director of Student Affairs and registration stickers displayed.
Explicit rules governing registration, parking penalties, etc. are
printed in a pamphlet available at the same office.
Mary Washington College offers many opportunities for rec-
reation during the summer. An indoor swimming pool, tennis
courts, and a nine-hole golf course are all operated by the
College. Horseback riding is available at Grey Horse Stables,
not far from the campus, and instruction may be taken either
with or without credit. The Department of Health, Physical
Education, and Recreation also offers instruction in golf, swim-
ming, and tennis.
Informal dances and other social events are regularly scheduled
on Friday evenings during the summer session; a program of
moving pictures to be presented either Friday or Saturday evenings
will also be available. In addition, the Department of Dramatic
Arts and Speech will present two plays during the session.

The College offers courses leading to the degree of Bachelor of
Arts and Bachelor of Science in most fields of the humanities
and sciences, as well as cooperative programs in a number of
special fields. (For a description of the requirements for degrees
and of special programs, consult the General Catalogue.)
The courses listed below will be offered during the 1970 sum-
mer session. The College reserves the right, however, especially
with courses noted as "contingency courses," not to offer them if
enrollment is insufficient.
Eight to ten semester hours' credit may be earned in the
summer session. Except as indicated, each semester of a course
carries a credit of three semester hours. If both semesters are
completed, the credit is usually six semester hours. In the listing
of courses below as "three or six credits," the determining factor
is whether the student takes one or both semesters.
